	I migrated users from Outlook MAPI, to Outlook IMAP against an exchange
server in preparation for migrating to Cyrus.
	For all its flaws Outlook IMAP works better than Outlook MAPI.
The only "new" problem was that Outlook IMAP would not "properly" use
the Outlook "special" folders like calendar, tasks and contacts when
accessed via IMAP. All Microsoft's Contacts, tasks, etc are is specially
formated messages. It would be really nice if tbird was able to parse
those messages, and use them as contacts, or calendar items.
